A PETERHEAD Academy pupil is appealing for help to raise £4,100 to enable her to take part in a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Costa Rica and Nicaragua next year.

Fourth year pupil Sarah Bruce (15) is one of 11 pupils taking part in a World Challenge educational expedition for four weeks in 2013.

The expedition, which will be physically and mentally challenge, will involve working with local communities and helping with local schools or orphanages.

Sarah, of Queen Street, is appealing for help from any businesses or individuals who are able to sponsor her or can provide premises to hold a fundraising bingo tea and buttery morning.

And donations of items or vouchers to raffle will also be greatly appreciated.

Sarah has already started fundraising through raffles, cake sales, jewellery making and an ongoing ragman collection.

Future plans include a sponsored walk from Dyce to Peterhead and a bingo team. She is hosting a Prize Bingo at Buchanhaven Hearts on Thursday, March 1.

If anyone can help contact Sarah on (01779) 479299 or at 100 Queen Street, Peterhead.
